Katipo Project Survival Kit

Not for Profit

Katipo has always worked in the not for profit sector. Our strong open source background enables us to provide robust, cost effective solutions for organisations which have many calls on their budget. We are sympathetic to the needs of NGOs, working professionally with both your paid staff and volunteers.

Transparency International New Zealand

Transparency International New ZealandTransparency International New Zealand is the recognised New Zealand representative of Transparency International, the global coalition against corruption. Their website was developed on a tight budget using the open source Joomla content management system.

The site is easy for TINZ staff to maintain and provides links to external RSS feeds to keep visitors up to date on the latest information and news related to global corruption issues.  Visitors can apply for site membership to access additional content.  Membership approval is monitored by the website administrator.




NZUAGThe New Zealand Utilities Advisory Group (NZUAG) is a joint consultative group of road owners and utility companies working together to create outcomes to benefit all road users and communities. As such they need a site that can be used to communicate not only to the group members, but also promotes colloboration between different parties when it comes to digging up the roads. The site is maintained in house by NZUAG staff with Kea.



Pacific Internet Partners

Pacific Internet PartnersEstablished by UNESCO, UNDP and InternetNZ, the Pacific Internet Partners project works to improve the skill levels of ICT professionals in the Cooks Islands, Niue, Samoa and Tokelau - countries chosen for their strong links to New Zealand and the organisations involved.

As an initial partner of PIP, InternetNZ approached Katipo to create a website with a clean and simple design that would be used as an source of information about news, events and resources for those with an interest in the PIP project.




SAMsnThe Sustainable Agriculture/Horticultural Management Systems Network (SAMsn) website is the realisation of a 4 year research project identifying and cross-referencing the legislation, standards and guidelines from 37 agricultural industry groups. The website is a directory designed to help users develop a cohesive sustainable management program for their business or industry.

The website was developed with accessibility in mind, particularly for those on dialup connections in rural areas. Download times were kept to the minimum with the use of PERL and MySQL as development tools and a version of the web application is available on CD. The CD uses redirects to point to information on the live website, and thereby avoids becoming obsolete overnight.
